In Memory

Glenn Arthur Scrambler, Sr.

On Monday, April 5th, 2021, Glenn Arthur Scambler Sr. passed away peacefully at home after an extended illness. He was 85 years old. He is survived by his beloved wife of 60 years Jane E Scambler, three devoted children Stephanie Young and her husband Greg, Linda Gray and her husband Michael and Glenn Arthur Scambler Jr., the joy of his life, his three grandchildren Austin Young, Bradley Young, and Sara Gray.

He spent over 40 years as an educator and was much loved by his best and brightest students in Honors Biology and Chemistry in the Palm Beach County School System.

Born in Fort Pierce, Florida to Floyd and Norma (Keeler) Scambler, on January 20, 1936, he proudly attended Florida State University as a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fraternity and was a walk-on member of the Seminole Football Team.

Glenn was honored to receive his Masters of Education at Harvard University in Cambridge Massachusetts in 1964 and earned his Educational Specialist degree from Nova Southeastern
University in Ft. Lauderdale in 1980.

As a Biologist, his love of growing things gave joy to many as he was quick to share an azalea, an orchid, or perhaps a tomato plant with fellow plant lovers.

He spent many happy hours gardening in his yard at the home he shared with Jane in Tequesta, Florida for over 22 years.

He was a member of the Indian Hammock Hunt and Riding Club in Ft. Drum, Florida for 25 years and took great joy in the family vacation home he built there.

He was fond of saying “Only Rocks live forever” but he will live on in the spirit of his family and friends.

A celebration of life will be held at Indian Hammock later this summer. Details will be posted on his Facebook page.
